to those that were polled by "usa today" that said sanction russia but don't arm ukraine, that is what they found out in this poll. >> guest: i disagree. sanctions i don't believe are ever going to work because we'll never have a unified regime of sanctions that are going to have enough teeth where it doesn't hurt western interests as bad. and so we'll never have the types of sanctions. you need sanctions in an, in types of countries that can't bite back. sanctions work good, i think, in north korea, potentially iran. i think it's much more difficult against an economy as large as russia. again, nobody's calling for a u.s. or nato combat troops on the ground to engage, but we are talking about providing some pretty good defensive weaponry, things like antitank weapon, that type of thing, to change putin's calculus so he doesn't mass a full-fledged invasion. give the ukrainian people a chance to stabilize their government, stabilize their country. >> host: i also want to ask you about what secretary of state john kerry said about the mideast peace process. your colleague, senator ted cr

name it, and russia as well. >> and what is the, you have raised a number of point, the t and let me address them. for example, with the president's strategy, we put a deal in place to remove syria's chemical weapons, and no shots fired, and killed suspected terrorists with the drone, and hasn't there been several examples that show that this sort of policy not only can work, but does it without any crazy expense or the loss of life. >> well, in terms of the loss of life, there have been thousands of more syrians killed using chemical weapons, and so when the administration leads from behind, and allows russia the lead syria with chemical weapons, we have seen it does not work there. in terms of iran, right now, iran got exactly what they wanted, sanctions removed, relief of the sanction, and they got access to the additional $7 billion of previously frozen assets, and so far, i have not seen the kind of results that we need in the united states in terms of the nuclear armed iran. >> let me go back if we can, because you brought up the sanction, and today, the european union brought
sanctions against russia, an investigation into corruption gets under way. the opulent home filled with suits of armor. there was a golf course on the outside. dozens of antique cars and a massive riverboat and more. >> reporter: when ukraine comes to terms with the troubled economy and asks where did all of the money go? here is part of the answer. the president's own vodka. >> today the u.s. attorney general will participate in a forum in britain to help identify, trace and recover proceeds of corruption stolen by the former ukrainian regime. an interesting exercise since the guy who used to live in that palace is now protected in russia. matthew chance joins us from washington. what are the russians saying about this? >> reporter: there's been no official reaction of course to this. you're right the ousted former president of ukraine does indeed live somewhere in the moscow region. you know what? i think many russians see this exercise, however valiant it is, as being something of double standards. yes, okay. it may be worthy to look for the stolen assets of this regime but will
sanctions for russia today and more outrage from moscow. russia is condemning what it calls iron curtain sanctions. the u.s. has imposed on seven russian individuals and 17 companies with close personal ties to president vladimir putin. today the european union added 15 names to its own list of figures close to the kremlin. meanwhile the obama administration is defending itself against bipartisan criticism in congress that it's not doing more. treasury secretary jack lew spoke to nbc's andrea mitchell. here's what he had to say. >> sanctions are doing what sanctions can do. they're affecting the russian economy. obviously we've made clear that we're prepared to take more steps should we need to. one could say do everything all at once or one could say it do it step by step in a way that most likely will be effective. >> germany depends on russia for a third of its energy and would be key to applying more pressure. by the way, german chancellor angela merkel will meet with president obama at the white house later this week. on monday, russia's defense minister assured chuck hagel that rus
